How Long Does Prestige Turbo Yeast Last?

how long does Prestige Turbo Yeast last

Answering this question depends on several variables, such as the type of Turbo yeast you use, fermentation temperature and how much sugar has been added. When adding Turbo yeast to a solution it’s important that all sugar has dissolved fully before adding Turbo yeast; otherwise fermentation may stall or even stop altogether.

Additionally, using high-quality ingredients and maintaining an ideal water temperature when beginning fermentation are both key elements to ensure rapid and uninterrupted fermentation. Utilizing a thermometer is also key, as Turbo yeast produces plenty of heat during its fermentation process that could potentially elevate liquid temperatures by several degrees higher than air temperatures at its location of fermentation.

The Black Label Turbo yeast is an ideal choice for high alcohol production, featuring excellent temperature tolerance and producing up to 17% in 5 days. As its instructions differ slightly from others turbo yeasts, this one should be stirred directly into sugar solution instead of being presoaked – this prevents its cells from expanding too rapidly, leading them to rupture or die prematurely.
